The three C's -- Color, Contrast and Cohesion -- can make or break your quilt! Learn to control them as you start a simply pieced scrap quilt. Begin to work your creative muscles with observation and articulation. Learn why color is the least important of the three C's. Discover ways to unify diverse fabrics and understand the way value and contrast work together. Get comfortable with making decisions as you go, because that's what a scrap quilt requires. Once you begin to work in this way, you might not want to go back!

Choose from numerous easily pieced designs so you'll love what you're making. Patterns are included so there's nothing extra to purchase. Get ready to be inspired, see fabrics in a new light, enjoy playtime and make something fabulous! You likely already have everything you need for this workshop. Supply list becomes available at registration; patterns arrive two weeks before class.

A Note From Diane to Participants:
I wanted to touch base with you before next week's workshop with LQG, "Color, Contrast & Cohesion." The idea is to choose one of the designs and pull some fabrics in a color plan that you like to get started. They are deliberately simple as far as piecing goes. (The patterns are provided by the Program Chairs when you register for the class.) 

We will learn a lot at the beginning of the day and then you may have some new ideas about where your project can go. This is why I don't want you to cut out a king-size quilt beforehand! Do enough cutting for three or four blocks, to get you started.

You can eventually make your project as large as you want, or you may decide that you just want to make blocks as exercises to help you understand the concepts. There is a great deal of flexibility. 

I will bring fabrics along to share with you. Sometimes it helps to spice things up with fabric from someone else's stash! And I'll show you how I make cutting faster and more efficient for scrappy quilts.
